Wine Gems – The Hub & First Sighting

The Hub

Tanja Beutler’s journey in the wine industry spans nearly three decades. After falling in love with wine during her travels in California, she pursued her passion upon returning to South Africa. She gained extensive knowledge working at Thelema Mountain Vineyards and later worked at the Rustenburg Wine Estate where she handled the wine sales. Several years later, Tanja co-founded Topaz Wine Company and The Garagiste Movement of South Africa. She also initiated Topaz Wine Education. 
In 2005, she started Hidden Gems, a wine consulting company, and created her solo brand, Red Tape.

In 2017, Tanja and Flagan Mitchley established the Cape Town Wine Hub, offering comprehensive wine services in South Africa, including bonded storage, warehousing, transport, distribution, and labeling. Tanja has since developed a range of bespoke wines under Cape Town Wine Hub, ranging from a lifestyle range, a cultivar-based selection, as well as the premium “The Hub“ range.

First Sighting


Conquering their fears of sea monsters and treacherous equatorial waters, Bartholomeu Diaz and later Vasco da Gama navigated to South-East Asia and China via the Cape, returning with spices more precious than gold and altering the course of history. The First Sighting Range commemorates the bold vision and adventurous spirit of these early explorers who uncovered a sea route to the exotic and spice-laden East. Exceptionally palatable and ideal for everyday drinking, the First Sighting wines remain authentic to their coastal origins.

Meticulous decisions in the vineyard, coupled with slow ripening periods, result in wines with generous flavors, a testament to the versatility that makes them suitable for any occasion.
